9780007133741: Darkwar (1) - Flight of the Night Hawks

The first book in a brand new series from world-wide bestselling author of MAGICIAN, Raymond E. Feist.

The Conclave of Shadows have two problems: the final destruction of Leso Varen and the neutralization of the thousands of Talnoy discovered by Nakor in Novindus.

Acting as the go-between for the Conclave and the Great Ones on the world of Kelewan whilst they study the alien Talnoy, Magnus realises that creature is acting as a rift ‘magnet’ – attracting the same dangers as it did on Midkemia, and could easily provide a doorway for the terrible Dasati to invade and decimate Kelewan.

In Novindus, whilst studying the host of Talnoy secreted away in the cave, Nakor is ambushed by a small band of bandits. Fortunately, Tomas accompanies the small Islani, and he defeats the outlaws with ease. But, one of their number fights with such ferocity that Tomas suspects him to be more than human.

After several near-disastrous conflicts Kaspar, Talwin and Amafi uncover the new nest of Nighthawks plotting against the royal house of Kesh. But when they attempt to warn the Emperor, it becomes clear that many of the truebloods – nobles related by birth to the Emperor – are already Varen's slaves, both willing and unwitting.

FLIGHT OF THE NIGHTHAWKS begins a brand new series from the master of fantasy, set on a grand scale; revisiting the exotic political-intrigue of Great Kesh, (touched upon in the classic Riftwar books) and carrying the reader into a dark underworld of crime and black magic.
